Mario Gets Crafty in Needlepoint

by Paul Strauss

Check out this amazingly precise needlepoint inspired by Super Mario Brothers. Artist Lauren Yakiwchuk must have had the patience of a saint to pull off the detail in this scene from the Nintendo classic platformer.

It took Lauren about 30 hours to complete this 9″ x 11″ scene from SMB, handstitching the entire piece from scratch. The dotted look of needlepoint really captures the look of the pixel structure of video games, resulting in one of the finest looking works of video game craft I’ve ever laid my eyes on.

While you can’t buy this particular piece, Lauren does have plenty of other nifty handcrafted items (many with video game inspiration) over on her lostmitten website, so be sure to check it out. She also plans on doing more scenes like these in the future, so maybe we’ll have a chance to get our hands on one for ourselves.
